Just in Time for YPF!!

Mail! Whoo hoo and a visit to a small craft fair, where for once in my life I picked up some locally made yarn and buttons. Also the secret package arrived but I can't post it as it is the yarn for my knittyboard Rut busting sock pal.

But onto the Yarn porn!
First up: A purchase from Handpaintedyarn.com. Whilst it isn't the highest quality or as well spun as the zepher- 850yds for $6 (US) is still a good bargin. I got 3 skeins of emerald green.




Next the haul from the craft fair: Baby buttons for baby cardigans, hand made wood buttons from Chunky Timber and yarn from WA's own majestic merino. ($13 Aus for 100g/198m) not bad. I bought 3 skiens for the fitted knits shrug, in yes again green and grey.




And last but not least, my charity haul. No I didn't pick it up, I gave it away. Yep all these handknitted goodies (plus more) went off to Save the Children. Good Karma restored!!
